What's Interesting

  • Pulitzer winner Christopher Rouse's music reflects his insatiable curiosity across a variety of influences. The Sixth Symphony is his final work, composed just months prior to his death in September 2019. 
  • "Rouse can make even a modestly sized orchestra roar, shriek, and nearly explode." —NPR
  • Ravel's Bolero is one of the most recognizable pieces in all of orchestral music. (You may remember the famous melody from the movies). 
  • Lalo’s Symphonie espangole is a violin showpiece in the hands of artist-in-residence Guy Braunstein, former concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic.
